Here's a quick interview with former Oregon State and current NFL safety wide receiver Sammie Stroughter, who has been in Corvallis to work out and watch Spring practice during the NFL lock out.
Sammie played at Oregon State under head coach Mike Riley from 2003-2008, sitting out the 2007 season. He started two seasons for the Beavers, becoming one of the best wide receivers in program history. Stroughter also was a stand-out punt returner at OSU and was widely recognized as one of the most explosive and exciting players in the nation.
During his time with the program, Stroughter became one of the most honored players in the history of the Oregon State program and one of the top receivers in the Pac-10. He completed his career third at OSU for career receptions (164) and yards (2,653). His all-purpose total was 4,299 yards, fourth at OSU. He owns the fourth-best (1,293 yards/2006) and sixth-best (1,040 yards/2008) single-season receiving yards mark at OSU. Sammie earned Second-Team All-Pac-10 and Third-Team AP All American honors in 2006. He also returned 3 punts for touchdown that year, including a 70-yard TD to help OSU end 3rd ranked USC's record-setting consecutive win streak at 27. Stroughter was named First-Team All-Pac-10 in 2008.
Sammie was drafted in the 7th round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and returned a kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown against the Carolina Panthers in week 6 of his rookie season.
